What Do Contractors & Customers Have to Say About

What can customers and contractors expect from Here's what Larry in Maryland had to say about a deck he constructed for one of his customers using our quality products & services:

"Our customer wanted a low maintenance deck that would keep the natural open feel of his wooded back yard. We used Ipe lumber, hidden fasteners, and oil for the finish. The project melts into the wooded setting. The owner loved it, the wood is never hot to touch. We sealed the project twice when it was finished in the summer of 2009 and it still looks great."

Save Money by Knowing the Difference Between Nominal & Finished Dimensions

To get your deck building project off the ground right you need to know exactly how much material you will need. Not accounting for the actual "finished" dimensions can leave you short material. Unfortunately, many first-time DIY deck builders learn the hard way and assume they've ordered just enough 1x6 wood to build their deck. They fail to account for the finished dimensions of that board. Don't forget, even the most seasoned professional orders more decking for their projects. Why? Because on the job site, mistakes happen.

So, to avoid paying extra shipping, labor, and material cost, we always recommend ordering at least 10% more material. This way, you cover yourself just in case.
